Mining A $10,000 Quadrillion Asteroid
Bob Goldstein, CEO of US Nuclear Corp (OTC: UCLE) weighs in on asteroid mining, “Mining of rare and valuable metals from the asteroids has long been fantasized, but then disregarded as something that is in the distant future. However, recent breakthroughs in fusion energy could lead to a new generation of faster, more powerful spacecraft propulsion systems, precisely for the purpose of asteroid mining expeditions.”
The mining of asteroids has long been viewed as a vast source of wealth consisting of rare earth elements and precious metals. The short supply and high prices for these minerals have put us at odds with other countries, disrupting the supply chain of phones, computers, electric cars, and slowing our economic growth. In fact, terrestrial reserves on Earth could be exhausted within the next few decades.
